Ulsan Conducts 2018 Small-scale Rainwater Harvesting System Support Project
Application forms will be received until March 7

Ulsan Metropolitan City conducts the 2018 Small-scale Rainwater Harvesting System Support Project. Through this project, Ulsan will provide subsidies to building owners who intend to install rainwater harvesting systems.

 Rainwater harvesting systems refer to facilities that collect rainwater from roofs and walls and reuse it for landscaping, cleaning, and agriculture. A rainwater harvest system consists of rainwater collection, filtration, storage, water conveyance, and drainage.
Building owners who intend to install rainwater harvesting systems in structures with a roof area of less than 200㎡ can receive 90% of the construction costs, not exceeding 10 million KRW.

 This year, Ulsan will invest 100 million KRW in this project and select about 20 buildings through an application review process and onsite investigation.

 Anyone who would like to apply for the subsidy should submit an application form in person or by registered mail to Ulsan Environmental Policy Division (+82-52-229-3273) by March 7.

 Selected applicants can receive subsidies from Ulsan after installing rainwater harvesting systems and receiving a completion inspection.

 If they obtain a certificate for installation of rainwater harvesting systems from the competent gu/gun after installation, they can receive water bill reduction benefits as well, in accordance with the Ordinance of the Water Supply Act.

 Water shortage is getting worse due to climate changes. As Ulsan has been suffering from severe droughts since last year, it needs to greatly increase the reuse of water.

 Ulsan is looking forward to the active participation of numerous citizens in the rainwater harvesting system support project and is expecting to save water and increase awareness of water reuse.

 From 2012 to 2017, Ulsan invested a total of 290 million KRW to help 42 places, including preschools and detached residences, install rainwater harvesting systems.
